LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers' pitching depth took a double hit on Wednesday, when Rule 5 Draft acquisition Seth Rosin was claimed off waivers by Texas, and Javy Guerra was claimed by the White Sox.

The Dodgers had already given up on Guerra 10 days ago, when he was designated for assignment, and had hoped to trade him. When that didn't happen, the club tried to get the former closer through waivers so it could outright him to the Minor Leagues.

Rosin's situation was more complicated. To outright him to the Minor Leagues, Rosin needed to clear waivers, then be offered back to the Phillies, who lost him in the Rule 5 Draft.

The Dodgers need to clear roster space for the return of pitchers Zack Greinke, Dan Haren and Brandon League before the resumption of the regular season Sunday night.
